The Contemporary Craft Fair drew in large crowds throughout the weekend of 16th and 17th November and we were very pleased to meet so many of you at The Courtyard. Just about everyone we spoke to agreed that the standard of the exhibitors was of the highest order, attracting both the general public as well as galleries and the trade.

Many of you left us your names and emails to enter the daily prize draw, and there were three winners who have now all received their three legged bowls. Congratulations to Tony, Cathy and Martin.

The feedback received was very positive, with the Brushstroke Blues and the Valencia ranges proving the most popular. There were so many enquiries about techniques, dimensions, colours and commissions that we decided to invite you all to come and see things for yourselves at the workshop at No 9 Bankside in Ledbury, when we will be open to the public from 10 to 6 on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December. Perfect timing for those who want to buy that singular Christmas present, or order a pair of table lamps for the house or just spend £15 on a small but perfectly formed three legged bowl which has room for only two olives.
